Chelsea were held by a solid Bolton Wanderers defense in the first half of their Premier League encounter, but the Blues looked much better in the second half and coasted to a 3-0 victory. The Wanderers midfield and attack didn't give much help to Tim Ream, David Wheater and goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, who were subjected to target practice. Chelsea had 26 shots and 13 on target as they ran over Bolton in the second half.
David Luiz put Chelsea ahead with a fantastic goal in the 48th minute. He started the move himself by winning possession back for his team, then continued forward and finished the move himself. After an exchange of passes, Luiz hit a fantastic shot past Bogdan at his far post from 15 yards out, looking like a center forward in the process.
Didier Drogba all but sealed the win with a great headed goal in the 61st minute off of a corner kick and Frank Lampard added the exclamation point with a simple close-range finish in the 79th minute, assisted by a Juan Mata cross.
